Our family went out with Lewis on our annual vacation to Ft Myers beach. Capt Lewis was very nice and the boat is very clean. We went out at 4pm for a four hour shark fishing trip. The weather was great and we even saw a very large sea turtle. It took almost an hour before we caught anything. After... More

Had a great time! Within 30 minutes of leaving the Getaway Marina, we were catching sharks. We caught 3 different species during the half day trip. We started off with smaller Lemon Sharks, graduated to Black tip Sharks, and then took on large Nurse Sharks (9’ long 200 pounds). One of the sharks was so big, it bent a #9... More

Booked a shark fishing outing with Mac Attack on the strength of the Trip Advisor reviews. On the way out of the harbor 2 dolphins followed us for about 2 miles jumping and frolicking in the boats wake. That alone was worth the trip. The boat was clean and the ladies room was spotless which my wife really appreciated. We... More

We went shark fishing mid-April and it was the best experience ever! Captain Louis was not only extremely knowledgeable but also a lot of fun. He made the experience amazing. FYI to future charters, do not... under any circumstance... bring bananas on the boat. The first day we were unsuccessful (because we had bananas on the boat) and he not... More

Shark fishing on the Mac Attack was the best part of our trip! After waiting all way for another charter to "come up with more people to take out for one trip" we walked right up to the marina and he had just come back from another trip and said he'd love to take us whenever we'd like!

What an awesome trip. My dad, husband, and my two teenage boys headed out for a half day shark trip. Captain Lewis was ready and waiting for us when we got there. The first thing I noticed was the cleanliness of the boat. By the way ladies, the restroom is great. We went out to one of his favorite spots... More
